View into Osrakum from the Blood Gate

I produced this sketch to give me an idea of what could be seen from the South Tower of the Blood Gate when looking back into Osrakum. If I had just ‘made it up’ I would not have imagined that this is what it would look like. It does serve to make clear certain things. The first is just how massive the Canyon is… The Black Gate, though quite a large structure, looks like a low fence. Even from this distance, the Pillar of Heaven is still a dominating landmark – which I suppose is not entirely surprising, since it is 2km high. I was a little surprised, however, to find that the Sacred Wall on the other side of the Skymere is also visible…
